Parkdean Resorts have gained a Silver Award in the MOD’s Employer Recognition Awards Scheme, in recognition of their support to the Armed Forces.
The Employer Recognition Scheme awards employers and organisations that pledge, demonstrate, or advocate support to Defence and the Armed Forces' community, and align their values with the Armed Forces Covenant.
To win a silver award, organisations must provide 5 extra days leave for Reservists and have supportive HR policies in place for veterans, Reserves, and Cadet Force Adult Volunteers, as well as spouses and partners of those serving in the Armed Forces.
Commenting on the announcement of the 2021 Employer Recognition Scheme Silver awards, Steve Richards, CEO of Parkdean Resorts, said: “Receiving the Silver Award so soon after signing the Armed Forces Covenant and registering for Employer Recognition Scheme is testament to how much our teams have embraced this partnership. We feel passionately about supporting our Armed Forces and we’ve already made great progress, so we’re determined to keep working hard together as we push for ERS Gold next.”
